BOOKISH GRWM: Beast: A Tale of Love & Revenge by Lisa Jensen

I had some thoughts, man...
BEAST hits stores on July 10th, FYI


Filled with magic and fierce emotion, Lisa Jensen's multilayered novel will make you question all you think you know about beauty, beastliness, and happily ever after.

They say Château Beaumont is cursed. But servant-girl Lucie can’t believe such foolishness about handsome Jean-Loup Christian Henri LeNoir, Chevalier de Beaumont, master of the estate. But when the chevalier's cruelty is revealed, Lucie vows to see him suffer. A wisewoman grants her wish, with a spell that transforms Jean-Loup into monstrous-looking Beast, reflecting the monster he is inside. But Beast is nothing like the chevalier. Jean-Loup would never patiently tend his roses; Jean-Loup would never attempt poetry; Jean-Loup would never express remorse for the wrong done to Lucie. Gradually, Lucie realizes that Beast is an entirely different creature from the handsome chevalier, with a heart more human than Jean-Loup’s ever was. Lucie dares to hope that noble Beast has permanently replaced the cruel Jean-Loup — until an innocent beauty arrives at Beast’s château with the power to break the spell.

  1. Yeah, this sounds like a tough one. I think mixing redemption story arc with things happening too easily just takes the teeth out of it. Also, setting up a rapist redemption and then undermining it by separating the rapist from the beast protagonist....that feels cheap. I don't think I'll try with this one- I can see it just pissing me off. :/ But thanks for sharing your experience with it! And also, your amazingly dramatic eye look (*le sigh* I wish I could do that, but with my hooded eyes it doesn't work so much). :D


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
